When a principal receives a phone call threatening their school it becomes a nightmare.
Victoria Lopez, Chaparral High School’s principal, received a phone call during the morning of Tuesday September 25, from an elementary staff member to inform her at a credible threat whose identity remained a mystery to the authorities.
“Office staff locked up the campus and sheriffs sent students to their first period class and teachers kept students in the class,” said Lopez. Lopez didn’t feel nervous because students were safe in their classrooms.
“We don’t make any investigations, the sheriffs and FBI are in charge of making the investigations,” said Lopez. “Law Enforcement cleared students of any wrong doing,” said Lopez.
“Students were very good, no discipline problems, and most students were following the problem on Facebook,” said Lopez.
Parents started picking up students at 11:00 am, at the end of the day about 550 students were picked up, buses were kind of empty.
